Here are a few I got from Miller's today. All size 4s. I'm a total newbie but they seem to be very similar to the ones I got at a local retailer. Averaged about $ 2. Very fast delivery with free shipping for orders over $ 29.

Experiment first, but you might find yourself trimming the rubber legs on that top one. Sometimes those little Mexican/Belize bonefish will bite short. As said, I use the natural bunny gotcha, almost exclusively and I trim off half the rabbit fur, so that the wing ends as close to the hook bend as possible. I also trim the rubber legs that come on some of them.

That small short fly, right-center in the photo (above that cockroach-looking fly)might also work on sheepshead on the flats. I already have some of those in a different color and can't wait to try one on them.

Thanks for the link, Meadowlark!! Yeah, I have nothing bad to say about those folks....very good service and a good product for salt water. However, if I were looking for fresh water trout flies, I would probably go with one poster's reply and stick with Orvis. They have tiers that all they do is tie those tiny mayflies and midges all day long and I feel they do a better job on 16-22 flies.

Good luck!!!

Check out S.S flies online. Great flies for all occasions. I have used them for years. Their missing link fly in tan has caught a many a Bonefish in the Bahamas and also works on redfish.

Bone fish -- Christmas Island, caught 1 million Bonefish in Belize on these! Millers salt water crab is EASY to tie with EP Brush in the tan/blue combo, and you can tie many different crab colors easily with the EP Brushes that look as good or better than Millers!
